Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at NDS (Costa Mesa, CA) in January 2009.

Interview

Company requires idiots to fillup the joint; every once in a while, a skilled engineer accidently joins the company. Company requires PERFECT TRW and credit scores. They pretend that the company has important secrets to protect. Do not try to join unless you want to be screened by CREDIT SCORE and SECURITY COMPANY and 3 or 4 letters of REFERENCE and calls to past employers. 30+day process NDS painful.

Interview Questions

  • how do you deal with managers who do not speak your language?   1 Answer
  • Are you willing to take continous and ongoing bonings from your direct manager, in order to continue employment?   1 Answer

Negotiation

So long as you were willing to take recurring from your bosses, they were willing to pay. Start as high as you think they can bear, because you will get HARD and OFTEN, should you take job offer. Consider high 110's. High 120's are for mgt. Architechs might ask mid 140's. Few senior mgr make $300K+, but rare.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at NDS (Bangalore (India)).

    Interview

    I got the interview call through employee referral. Whole hiring process started from written test which includes aptitude and core java as the job profile for which I got the call was related to Java. I cleared the written test and got the result within 1 hour only. After that two technical round happened. Starting from OOPs concept interviewer asked questions in depth from core java. Most of the questions were from collections, string and exception handling. They asked some questions from design pattern as well. After clearing these two round, managerial round was there to clear. In that, interviewer screwed me like anything. He asked the reason for change and what are your future plans and questions like why NDS and many more questions. Somehow I managed to convince the interviewer by my words. Finally HR round happened. HR was very cool and asked very normal questions. All the rounds happened in one day. Within 1 week I got the the confirmation mail and offer letter as well. :)
